Yankees stick with regular lineup in Game 1

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Oct 15, 2010 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

No sense getting fancy. The Yankees are sticking with what worked in the division series.

And I’ll be perfectly honest, this lineup might have been posted three minutes earlier, but I stopped at Steak ‘n Shake for some frozen goodness on my way to the park. It’s the little things in life.

Derek Jeter SS
Nick Swisher RF
Mark Teixeira 1B
Alex Rodriguez 3B
Robinson Cano 2B
Marcus Thames DH
Jorge Posada C
Curtis Granderson CF
Brett Gardner LF

One quick observation: This city is pretty excited about baseball. I have a great friend who works as a producer for a television station here in Dallas, and the past two times the Yankees were in town, Laura and I talked about how much this has remained a football town even with the Rangers playing pretty good baseball.

At lunch today, Laura was saying the opposite. The town is caught up in baseball. There are claw and antler t-shirts everywhere. I listened to some of the craziest sports talk radio on my way to the park — there was a remake of New York, New York that rhymed the lyrics, Hamilton’s bat with Bengie’s kind of fat — and every person I’ve greeted at the stadium has been thrilled about playoff baseball. There’s excitement here. It’s going to be a good atmosphere tonight.

  5. Erin October 15th, 2010 at 4:29 pm

    I won!!!

    Thanks Chad-now I want Steak n’ Shake. ;)

  6. minnesota yankee fan October 15th, 2010 at 4:30 pm

    Go Yankees! A whole week without baseball is over!

  7. m October 15th, 2010 at 4:32 pm

    Was the frozen goodness yummy?

    Yankees 2
    Accuscore 0

    Game 1 @ Twins Accuscore had it 51/49 Twins (6-4 Yankees win)
    Game 2 @ Twins Accuscore had it 54/46 Twins (5-2 Yankees win)
    Game 3 @ Twins Accuscore had it 64/36 Yankees (we’ll call this a draw with a 6-1 Yankees win)

    Game 1 @ Texas Accuscore has it 50/50

    Looks like Accuscore puts a premium on HFA

  8. Nick in SF October 15th, 2010 at 4:33 pm

    a better contest for the post season would be ‘who can’t GTLU’, it’s going to be pretty easy from here on…

  16. Joekuh October 15th, 2010 at 4:43 pm

    I look forward to crushing the town’s spirit tonight :D

  17. PacoDooley October 15th, 2010 at 4:44 pm

    I would prefer to see Granderson batting second given how things have played out recently and Swish batting 6th. I don’t tend to look at lineups with regards to righty-lefty, so I haven’t considered that.

    Of course, if this team really wanted to kill, they would swap Gardner and Jeter…

  18. YanksfaninPA October 15th, 2010 at 4:44 pm

    Lets go Bombers.

    Set the tone CC!

    If anyone sees Joeman and he still wants to get his prediction in, please tell him he has until 7 tonight. I will be out until shortly after 8 and won’t take any predictions that come in after 7. Same for Joe from L.I. and any other stragglers. I think Vineyard turned all of his posting rights over to WCSF…

    Piece of cake. We have this game sewn up. IMHPO of course.

    same here except for the “don’t come back until Wednesday” part :(

  22. m October 15th, 2010 at 4:47 pm

    Not sure, but I think Wilson’s a LHP. If he is, then there’s no way that Girardi would bat Granderson lefty. Not this season and not with a switch hitter option.

    BTW, Chad. The reason why the area is gaga for the Rangers is 1)yes, the stupid antler thing, but more importantly 2)the Cowboys are playing bad, in a year they’re hosting the Super Bowl.

  23. Fran the original October 15th, 2010 at 4:47 pm

    Erica,

    Have a great time.

  24. trisha - true pinstriped blue October 15th, 2010 at 4:48 pm

    Time to go to my first meal of the night…

  25. Wave Your Hat October 15th, 2010 at 4:49 pm

    “Of course, if this team really wanted to kill, they would swap Gardner and Jeter…”

    Jeter has actually hit LHP very well this year: .321/.393/.481 on 239 PAs.

    It’s vs RHP he has struggled.

  26. rb from LI October 15th, 2010 at 4:49 pm

    base running – bullpen – defense. I’m just sayin’.

  31. Fran the original October 15th, 2010 at 4:58 pm

    Chad,

    Of course Dallas is caught up in baseball. The Cowboys haven’t given them anything to cheer about.

  32. MTU October 15th, 2010 at 4:59 pm

    Fran-

    I’m hoping that will be true of the Rangers too. ;)

  33. tampayank October 15th, 2010 at 4:59 pm

    “And I’ll be perfectly honest, this lineup might have been posted three minutes earlier, but I stopped at Steak ‘n Shake for some frozen goodness on my way to the park. It’s the little things in life.”

    ha ha good call. Recommend the Frisco Melt but I think I’ve never eaten at a Steak n Shake when the sun was out, it’s one of those places ;)

  34. 108 stitches October 15th, 2010 at 5:02 pm

    The Cowboys of Jerry Jones have flopped so fans in Dallas / Fort Worth have switched to antlermania.
    Take the crowd out of the game.

  35. West Coast Yankee Fan October 15th, 2010 at 5:02 pm

    On the importance of tonight’s game:

    “We have to win games when CC is on the mound. Period.” – Jorge Posada

  36. MTU October 15th, 2010 at 5:04 pm

    I really don’t care if we win today or tomorrow as long as we win 1 of the 2.

    If we win 2 of 2 we’re golden.

    :)

  37. comet October 15th, 2010 at 5:06 pm

    Doreen any chance of entering GTLU early for tomorrow? I’ll be in the air or stuck in Detroit from 7:30 am until 6:00pm. Won’t be able to participate otherwise.

    Thanks,

    Comet

  38. comet October 15th, 2010 at 5:07 pm

    Erin if you go to Steak and Shake splurge and have the wisconsin Burger with extra cheese. One word. Heavenly.

  39. Bret The Hitman October 15th, 2010 at 5:07 pm

    I want to win the first 2 and force the pressure on the Rangers in Game 3 so Andy can just toy with them.

  40. MTU October 15th, 2010 at 5:09 pm

    Bret-

    I was just describing the minimum requirement.

    If they take 2 so much the better.

  41. RJ October 15th, 2010 at 5:11 pm

    “At lunch today, Laura was saying the opposite. The town is caught up in baseball.”

    Chad, you tell them it’s too bad their season’s only gonna last another week… maybe less. Then they can go back to football.

    A big 7 course job.

  43. BIG AL October 15th, 2010 at 5:13 pm

    MTU -

    Bite your tongue. We need these 2 games, to guard against tough games 3 & 4. The worst we should be is up 3-2 following the 3 games at YS. Anything else spells trouble.

  44. MTU October 15th, 2010 at 5:15 pm

    AL-

    I’m figuring 2 of 3 at NYS. It’s our house.

  45. BIG AL October 15th, 2010 at 5:16 pm

    And who’s pitching game 4?

  46. MTU October 15th, 2010 at 5:17 pm

    AL-

    I understand but Lee vs. AP is not a lock for them.

    And as I said. It’s our house.

  48. RJ October 15th, 2010 at 5:21 pm

    I don’t think the Rangers should feel any better about Tommy Hunter going in YS down 2-1 than the Yankees feel about AJ going at home up 2-1. It’s a wash. It’s gonna be a high-scoring game, likely a bullpen fest and I’ll take our BP over theirs any day.

    “I don’t think the Rangers should feel any better about Tommy Hunter going in YS down 2-1 than the Yankees feel about AJ going at home up 2-1.”

    They shouldn’t. But the Rangers don’t have any other options.

    The Yankees do.

  51. BIG AL October 15th, 2010 at 5:25 pm

    If AJ puts us over the top in game 4, I’ll be listening for the sound of all those negative fans jumping off the bridge, ha, ha.

  52. Doreen October 15th, 2010 at 5:25 pm

    comet -

    Sure. No problem.

    Enter away. :)

  53. m October 15th, 2010 at 5:25 pm

    Eduardo Perez said the Rangers win. The country is going to find out how good the Rangers are. Wilson knows how to pitch in that park and he’s going to shut the Yankees down.

    Chis Singleton said the Yankees will prevail because Perez will soil his uni when he looks up and sees Cano, Teixeira, Rodriguez.

    I don’t like Singleton’s logic. Perez in the game=not good for Yankees.

    Yankees win tonight. CC=been there, done that.

  54. Cashmoney October 15th, 2010 at 5:29 pm

    Chris Singleton is on drug for saying that. If empirical evidence counts as anything, Feliz prolly will.

    But anywho, CC is better than CJ, whom I think is a good pitcher who seem to have his control in order from Sept on. But CJ’s stuff is very hittable to me.

  55. m October 15th, 2010 at 5:32 pm

    I was paraphrasing there. He didn’t actually say that Perez will soil his uni. He said he’d look up, see those guys and lose command of his fastball.

    see those guys + lose command of fastball=soiled uni :)

  56. BIG AL October 15th, 2010 at 5:32 pm

    Later folks, enjoy the game.

    GO YANKEES!

  57. Betsy October 15th, 2010 at 5:32 pm

    These fans are all probably fair-weather and will disappear next time the Rangers struggle.

  58. Betsy October 15th, 2010 at 5:34 pm

    So what is Jorge saying? The Yankees can’t win if they lose tonight’s game? Sometimes Jorge really says silly things.

  59. Cashmoney October 15th, 2010 at 5:34 pm

    I see two pretty evenly match team. The biggest advantage I see is Mo vs Feliz.

  60. m October 15th, 2010 at 5:34 pm

    He’s saying that they have no business losing with CC on the mound.

  61. Jason Voorhees October 15th, 2010 at 5:35 pm

    That’s no different than fans who complain 24/7 even when their team is doing well.

  62. Betsy October 15th, 2010 at 5:37 pm

    M, why is Jorge putting the pressure on his team tonight? It’s a dumb comment.

  63. m October 15th, 2010 at 5:39 pm

    I don’t think the team is reading it the way you are, Betsy.

    He’s not saying win or else…

    He just means it’s our ace against their #2, let’s go get it.

  64. Ruby Tuesday October 15th, 2010 at 5:40 pm

    We will get stampeded by these Rangers .

  68. m October 15th, 2010 at 5:43 pm

    Betsy,

    Yeah, I’d rather he not have said that. But that’s Jorge, he’s the passionate leader of the club.

  69. SAS October 15th, 2010 at 5:43 pm

    Doreen,

    May I enter early too because of the 3 hr. time difference, it is noon at 9 here????

  70. stuckey99 October 15th, 2010 at 5:44 pm

    “These fans are all probably fair-weather and will disappear next time the Rangers struggle.”

    Watch the Don Mattingly Yankeeography sometimes. Watch him hit upper decks home runs with not a fan in site.

    The Yankees drew as few as 1.7m fans in as recently as 1995 and 1992 (I’ll excuse ’95 as being the post-strike season), outdrawn by the Texas Rangers, btw, in each of these years.

    They drew less than 1 million fans in 1972.

    Texas has solidly drew mid-2m fans every year since the new park opened, despite limited success on the field.

    http://www.baseball-almanac.co.....atte.shtml

    The point is, the NY Yankees have had eras in their illustrious history where the fans were fair-weather, just like everywhere else.

    I found this shot at Texas fans completely outta nowhere and gratuitous, Betsy

    I totally dig this idea, but . . . who writes the first letters you guys or us? (above says, you guys, however the email I got just said we write them.) What is the subject matter? Can we write about anything? I can imagine this is really a lot cheaper than therapy or medication for some men and women. Can we include photos of our cats? How about recipes for vegan cupcakes? There is usually a chance I may well have interesting things to write about. What is the statistical probability that the reader will care? Good idea! You are all amazing. Please advise.
